If You've Ever Wanted To Live Inside A Bass Pro Shop, Tony Stewart's $30 Million Home Just Hit The Market
The phrase "youth is wasted on the young" needs a bit of tinkering. Not that I disagree with it, but it doesn't really apply here. "Wealth is wasted on the rich" is more where my brain is at looking at this house. Now he's earned his money and can spend it however he pleases, but man oh man does this stink out loud. Even if you love the outdoors, just.. go outdoors! Don't bring the outdoors inside, that's insanity.
It's not all bad. Some of it is genuinely cool as hell. I think a bowling alley is one of the more underrated rich guy things to have in a mansion. You got a bowling alley and a golf simulator you really don't need much else. I don't even participate in either of those sports and if I had unlimited coins they'd both be in my $30 million mansion no questions asked. The mini-casino is fine, I guess. Looks a little too much like an actual casino which is almost exclusively tied to depression and some of the saddest sights one can witness in humanity. Not the mood I'm trying to bring into my personal home, but I don't hate the idea as much as the execution.
Everything else - outside of the location and the land itself - is rubbish. This is where I'd go to buy a crossbow. Or if I went on a family vacation to the Poconos, I would imagine the rental cabin would look like a scaled down version of this. To live? Sleep weeks at a time? Hold Christmas dinner in? Hardest of passes. My biggest gripe is that I can't spot a single appealing place to sit down. Every chair is sans padding. Buddy's got the same decor as the Keebler elves. The couch is fine but if I'm building a $30 million house you better believe multiple of those Ms are going towards some of the finest seatery known to man. Nothing, and I mean nothing, beats a quality chair. And this house is severely lacking in top notch seating options.
